Populaire Reviews

Populaire ultimately feels too desperate to be a crowd pleaser to really satisfy as one.

A fresh and colourful romantic comedy about typing? Surely some mistake? Au contraire.

Observer [UK]

There's a generosity and kindness underlying the smooth surface and a sense of sadness, of loss, about a past that can be recaptured as style but never recovered as reality.

Blessed with stunning sets, colourful costumes and a fine piano score, Populaire is a bright and breezy film that older audiences in particularly will appreciate.

It's a sweet little film - a trifle with extra custard - and whenever Rose beams in triumph, you can't help but beam right back.

Ridiculously charming as it spins a deliciously retro kitsch magic.

It's impossible not to be charmed by this cheeky French comedy, even if it's utterly predictable and never remotely breaks its gorgeously designed surfaces.

This is London

Régis Roinsard's concoction is seriously artificial.

Populaire is entirely predictable but it is also immensely charming, beautifully crafted and is a complete winner.

It's a speed comedy: snappy, inoffensive, mechanical, but mostly hitting the right keys.

Not since The Artist has there been a French film as delightful or commercial as Populaire. If you're looking for a happy, feelgood romantic comedy, here it is.

Guardian [UK]

You'll need to have a very sweet tooth for this, and it makes light of those difficult sexual politics that Mad Men attacked with such fierce satire.

Stylishly directed and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a hugely enjoyable French romcom (or Fromcom) with a witty, intelligent script and a pair of terrific comic performances from Deborah Francois and Romain Duris.

This frothy romance zips along, powered by pleasing performances from Romain Duris and Deborah Francois.

It's très chic and charming but a bit disappointing when you see where it's headed.

The colourful retro designs and the leads' sparkling chemistry help to Tipp-Ex over some of the predictability.

Far more energetic, vibrant and exciting than a subtitled French film about typing in the late '50s has any right to be, Populaire is hugely charming and genuinely funny.

The List

Somewhat disappointingly, the social and sexual commentary is sidelined by the film's typing competition-focused action - admittedly handled with real aplomb - and is otherwise buried beneath the inarguably beautiful period dressing.
